About the Chapter
More than 1,500 members (and counting) of the Saint Joseph’s Medical Alumni Chapter remain committed to enhancing the SJU experience for alumni and current students pursuing careers in the health sciences. They are a principled and busy group of graduates, hosting several events each year and holding true to the Chapter’s Mission and By-laws.

We encourage contact and interaction among our members, SJU faculty and current students to promote the responsible study and practice of the healing art, serve as a source of information, support, guidance and supplemental education for students and fellow alumni planning and working in healthcare professions, and assist in advancing healthcare related studies at the University through expertise sharing, collaboration and philanthropy.


The chapter plans and hosts several events throughout the year. The Medical Alumni Chapter honors fellow professionals with Medical Alumni Awards, including the Edward C. Bradley, S.J. ’51 Medical Alumni Award and the Reverend Clarence E. Shaffrey, S.J. Award.

In addition to the awards, Medical Alumni events include professional networking dinners, speakers, industry panels, and social events. Medical Alumni connect with students through mentoring, events such as Dinner with a Doc, and through the Medical Alumni Student Awards.   Each spring, the Medical Alumni Chapter also hosts the Pathophysiology Lecture Series on Thursdays at lunch for current students to hear from experts in a variety of specialties. 

Alumni also are encouraged to participate in signature SJU events like Hawktoberfest, Global Community Day, and the Alumni Gala.
